5 Days in Georgia
Transfer to hotel. Accommodation
Then trip to funicular of Tbilisi
Breakfast and then excursion of Mtskheta – Tbilisi.
A trip to Mtskheta is like a journey through time. The city was founded in the first century BC. e., this is the very first capital of Georgia – after it the title was taken away by Tbilisi. But Mtskheta remained the spiritual heart of the country: it was here that Christianity was first adopted, as early as 327 AD. e. By modern standards, this is not even a city, rather a big village, but the former greatness, and most importantly – everyone will feel the spirit of the time, even just strolling through the streets. Mtskheta is popular with tourists around the world, because the Georgian authorities are investing in the restoration of surviving monuments. In the city itself there are few, in fact the three main ones: the Samtavro monastery, the Svetitskhoveli cathedral and the fortress of Bebritsikhe.
After the trip, you will have a amazing evening in the restaurant. There will be program of Georgian dances and music as gift.
Breakfast and departure to Gori (Visit to the house of Joseph Stalin)
The idea to create a museum in the house where Stalin was born, it was organized 1937. Apparently, this was an order from above, because a similar one appeared in Vologda in the same year. Beria commanded Georgia directly that year, soeverything was coordinated with him. That first museum was modest and existed on the scale of the house itself. If Stalin had visited Georgia in those years, he would have had a unique opportunity to live in a museum named after himself.By a strange coincidence, the museum appeared exactly in the year of the death of Stalin’s mother (Ekaterina Geladze).
God’s fortress is an ancient cave city, one of the first cities on the territory of Georgia. Uplistsikhe is carved in a rock located 12 km east of the town of Gori on the left bank of the Kura River. The city emerged in the late II – early I millennium BC, experienced several ups and downs, was finally abandoned in the XIX century, therefore, a multi-layered archaeological site, one of the most important monuments of Georgian culture. The uniqueness of the monument lies in the fact that, thanks to its arrangement, it retains the remains of architectural and religious buildings built over several millennia. In the heyday Uplistsikhe included more than 700 caves and cave structures, of which only 150 have survived to date.
Borjomi is famous for its therapeutic mineral water, which is used as a drinking water for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, biliary tract, metabolism, kidneys and in the form of baths – for cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the nervous system and respiratory organs. Archaeological excavations here found stone baths, which indicates that the healing properties of mineral water were known and used in ancient times.
Return to Tbilisi
Breakfast and trip to Ananuri
Ananuri Fortress is located in Georgia on the Georgian Military Highway, 70 km from Tbilisi, where the small Vedzathevi River flows into Aragvi. Ananuri served as the main stronghold for the Aragvian Eristaves, the rulers of this region. The fortress belongs to the early feudal era and served as an outpost of defense, blocking the road leading from the Darial Gorge.70 km north of Tbilisi on the Aragvi River is the Zhinvali reservoir, which provides the Georgian capital with water and electricity. The dam on Aragvi was built in 1985, its height exceeds four hundred meters, its width is four hundred meters. The volume of water in the reservoir is more than half a billion cubic meters.
Next stop in Gudauri at the “Arch of Friendship”. The People’s Friendship Arch is the inspiration of the famous sculptor Tsereteli, it was built at an altitude of 2384 meters in the Kazbegsky district, on the Cross pass near the Military Georgian road, next to the Gudauri ski complex and is a mosaic panel that was very popular among sculptors of that era.
Dinner and departure to Monastery of Gergeti.(Holy-trinity)
The Church of the Holy Trinity (Tsminda Sameba) is a cross-domed church built in the 14th century. The only temple of this type in the Kazbegi district. It is located high on the mountain above the village of Gergeti and the town of Stepantsminda.
“… the white ragged clouds were dragged across the top of the mountain, and a solitary monastery, illuminated by the rays of the sun, seemed to float in the air, carried by clouds” (A.Pushkin, 1829)
Gerget Sameba is an amazing temple. This is a rare case of a temple high in the mountains, at an altitude of 2170 meters from sea level. An unusual combination of architecture and snow. It can be beautifully photographed on the background of the Kazbegi glaciers.
